My family stayed here for 2 nights. It is located off the main avenue, in a quieter section, overlooking a pretty creek. All rooms look out over the creek and have nice balconies. All the sites/restaurants in town are walkable from the hotel. Room was nice and clean. Breakfasts are very simple. Price was fantastic.

Our family spent six nights at Old Creek during our vacation. The front desk personnel went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. Room was clean and the wifi worked very well. The location is about perfect for touring Gatlinburg's strip. You are close enough to easily get to all the sites and yet far enough... More

Pros: The front desk staff were all wonderful. Always friendly and helpful. I think we interrupted the one doing his homework as we checked in, though, but still good nevertheless. The location is about a block away from the main drag. Parking was great. The rooms were clean, spacious, and comfortable. Cons: If you're on the lowest floor, people are... More

We didn't know what to expect when we arrived at the Old Creek Lodge in Gatlinburg, TN but was surprised to find that the accommodations were nice. Even though parking is limited due to the location, we were able to find a parking spot every time we left the hotel and returned. We had a very nice room with 2... More

This was our first stay at the Old Creek Lodge. It was located close to the park entrance, great places to eat and fun things to do. The staff was super nice and helpful. Neil, Muigel, Samantha, David and Faith. The room was very clean with everything you possibly needed. The view off our balcony of the streams was great!... More

Being it was our first time visiting Gattlinburg we booked ourselves a room a few months back around April. After reading some of the other reviews I specifically asked for an end top floor room when I booked back in April. I also called and made the same request the Saturday before we left home.

Sandra L, I deeply apologize for you having to wait outside before check-in, that is not routine for us and our front desk employees are supposed to be located at the front desk at all times to attend to every guest that arrives, unless an emergency occurs. I am sorry for the inconvenience of being stuck between two families that... More

Excellent clean room - loved that there was no carpet - nice wood look laminate flooring. All hotels should resort to NO carpet.! Clean crisp bed. Very quaint surroundings overlooking the stream.
